Hello AMAZING students and parents! I hope everyone is doing their part to stay healthy and safe while you are at your house. As I write this, I am filled with sadness that our year will be starting virtually however please know that we will have have fun, learn new things, set and achieve goals but most importantly we will build connections with one another. Room 4 is always filled with laughter, sarcasm, jokes, dance parties, American Idol sing alongs and most importantly LOVE!
We are a FAMILY in Room 4. It truly takes a VILLAGE and I am so happy that I get to be a part of your phenomenal village. With hard work, dedication and your support, we are UNSTOPPABLE. You know I am only a phone call or email away. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if you need anything. I am here for you!
I want to make sure that I keep you well informed of the things going on in our class. The best way to do this is for you to download the Canvas Parent app on your device. I will also provide a Remind 101 link during our first Google Meet conference. Please be sure to check Canvas on a regular basis for any new links, assigned projects, and other important information I need you to be aware of.

- Encourage problem solving.
- Play games and try to make the learning fun.
- Create and discuss ground rules and expectations/boundaries.
- Let kids share ownership of their learning.
